But he did mention that he had it himself, so it wasn't really singling him out. I think it was just about the reality of the situation with that first record that they had very little time to get it done in, and Dave had to step in and save the day. Taylor mentioned that he got some hand holding from Dave in the studio to make his recording work, but they had a bit more time and budget when it was his turn. It sounded like Goldsmith just couldn't get over it, which is a shame since he didn't get fired. Hell, even Kenny Aranoff didn't get to play on the first JCM record because he didn't know how to play in the studio.I enjoyed that, though I thought he was a little harsh on the first Foo Fighters drummer, William Goldsmith. He could have just not commented rather than say the guy got red light fever when the studio "recording" sign was turned on.
Such a gorgeous drum. A few questions come to mind.
1. Medium - medium high but it sounds great in ANY tuning. Never chokes, always great.Such a gorgeous drum. A few questions come to mind.
1. Do you have a preferred tuning?
2. Do you use this only for certain genres, or use it in all styles?
3. Do you wear a back brace when taking it to gigs?
If you watch interviews with Grohl about the subject he clearly states he handled it poorly and wishes he could go back and handle it differently. It was his first outing as a band leader instead of drummer as well. I am sure that has a learning curve to it as well.I'll preface this with, I love the Foos and think Dave Grohl is the best songwriter of the nineties and early 2000's, but Goldsmith was not some newb coming in to the studio. The guy had several recordings under his belt with Sunny Day Real Estate and others before and during. Dave just didn't like what he played and instead of communicating re-recorded all the tracks on Colour and the Shape with out letting Goldsmith know. It was a crappy move.
